Last March, my colleague Damir and I spent 5 weeks traveling across Canada on the Align IT Tour, talking to IT managers about business productivity and why IT needs to be strategic when building this into their infrastructure. We were joined in each city by a panel of local Microsoft partners and experts on implementing solutions geared to making businesses more productive, whether it be better collaboration, more accessible business intelligence or easier document management.
This episode is the first of a 4 part series where I speak to partners in Halifax and Ottawa to gain their insights.
